The Pilates Method offers both mind and body conditioning. By helping to rebalance your body, you will achieve the perfect balance of strength and flexibility. Pilates will help you to find, understand and maintain better posture, you will learn how to breathe more efficiently and improve your core stability. By targeting the deep postural muscles of your body, you are literally building strength from the inside out, creating a natural girdle of strength around your torso. Every movement is performed mindfully, with precision and control making it a very safe and effective way to exercise. This mindful approach can also help your mental wellbeing and can help you better cope with unwanted stress and tension.
The Body Control Pilates teacher training course that all of our teachers have successfully completed is the most comprehensive of its kind in the world and is widely seen as an international benchmark. Body Control Pilates offers a comprehensive programme of exercises for both mat and apparatus work. They are adapted from the 'classical' exercises developed by Joseph Pilates. In order for someone to work safely and effectively and to gain the full benefits of Pilates, these classical exercises should be broken down to establish good movement skills thus building the best possible foundation upon which to progress towards the classical, more advanced work. This is the essence of the Body Control Pilates Method.
